Interesting Online Casino Stories from around the Web
Added: November 18, 2013
There’s been so much happening in the online casino industry since we last posted, so we decided we would try and cram as many of these stories in as possible, bringing you several of the latest stories from around the web. Most of these stories unfolded towards the very end of October and continued to occur right up until November 18th.
Some of the very latest online casino game releases were developed by the world’s leading online casino software providers. IGT Interactive has developed a huge collection of non-downloadable slots and their very latest creation was an Oriental/wildlife themed slot called Water Dragons. This new slot is now available at several top casinos such as Betfred Casino, BetVictor Casino and Sky Vegas.
BetVictor Casino was also recently in the news when one of its registered members from Scotland won the largest ever prize paid out in one single payment at this UK casino. The North Sea Cod Fisherman ‘netted’ himself a cool €6.4 million (£5.4m) while playing on NetEnt’s Hall of Gods progressive slot.
There was also a player from Finland who won himself €3.2 million while playing on a different NetEnt slot called Mega Fortune. These two wins occurred less than one week apart and the player from Finland was playing at a Finnish online casino called Play among Friends, which, indecently was recently accredited by the online casino testing agency, eCOGRA, with the eCOGRA Safe and Fair seal of approval on October 18th 2013.
The other two recent big winners included a player from Royal Vegas Casino. This lucky winner scooped €1,062,335 while playing on a progressive jackpot slot machine called Mega Moolah. There was also a UK player won €2.3 million at >Winner Online Casino (Winner.com) on a Playtech slot called Gladiator Jackpot. Anyway, that’s enough about winners.
Some of the other most recently released online slot machines included a unique arcade-style slot machine from Betsoft Gaming called Sugar Pop. Realtime Gaming (RTG) launched a comical farm themed slot called Hen House. Rival Gaming launched Scary Rich 3D and Jolly Roger’s Jackpot and Microgaming released three new games.
Two of these new games from Microgaming, ThunderStruck 2 and Racing for Pinks, are both now widely available, but their other new slot, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, can only be found exclusively over at 32Red Casino.
Racing for Pinks is now available on Microgaming’s Quickfire, Flash and Download platforms (not yet on mobile) and Thunderstruck 2 is now available on mobile (HTML5). Thunderstruck 2 is also available on the same platforms as Racing for Pinks which means that it is now available on ALL of Microgaming’s platforms.
In other news, Vernons Casino (a top UK online casino) recently changed hands from an Alderney licensed company called Sportech to another Alderney licensed operator called NetPlay TV. Alderney is one of the most respected online gambling licensing jurisdictions in the world.
Jackpot Party Casino (now 3 years old) and Intercasino (almost 17 years old) both celebrate their birthdays in November. The latest game to arrive at Intercasino is a new Cryptologic slot called 20,000 Leagues and the latest slot to arrive at JackpotParty.com is a new WMS Gaming slot called Zanzibar.
